Margaret was born 4 Oct 1954 St Louis Mo. At about age 21 she relocated, as a single parent, with her daughter Elizabet age 1, to Memphis Tn. I am just getting some information that she did so to get away from criticism at home.
In Memphis there was a horrible fire where she was living. Margaret ran back into the house to save her child and both died 9 Jun 1975.
I need help. If someone could help by finding any news articles about this event, perhaps some names I have found on the past census may be explained.
Where and who did Margaret stay with.
I have names from the 1900 Tipton, Tn ..
William Hunt, Ed L Jones. I don't know what connection in relationship they might be. Margaret's mother was born in St Louis Mo. Only 1 uncle and 1 aunt was born in Memphis out of 6.
I found a picture of a man who wrote on the back..'from your brother' TO Margaret and my grandmother. No one alive remembers this person or a name. Maybe a news article will open another door.
I have a copy of Margaret's obit, which was held in St Louis Mo and only names I am familiar with were included.
I have emailed the MEMPHIS TN PUBLIC LIBRARY, to find out if they can help me. I have recieved no response as yet. I am hoping someone on the forums might get time to look for any information about this event.
